I just found this myself with Google. It turns out, on further google searching, that it's been posted recently on freerepublic as evidence of liberal/socialist (and local government) failure.

Ivan vs. New Orleans, one year ago:

Residents streamed inland in bumper-to-bumper traffic in an agonizingly slow exodus amid dire warnings that Ivan could overwhelm New Orleans with up to 20 feet of filthy, chemical-polluted water. About three-quarters of a million more people along the coast in Florida, Mississippi and Alabama also were told to evacuate.

[...]

Nagin said he would "aggressively recommend" people evacuate, but that it would be difficult to order them to, because at least 100,000 in the city rely on public transportation and have no way to leave.
